Teen Remembered After Bus Crash

Funeral services followed Daniel Woods visitation at Peoples Funeral Home in Falmouth, this afternoon.

His family talked publicly about their loss, for the first time since the bus crash.

"People have just really extended themselves to the family, it really made it easier knowing that there is so much love out there and people care", said Woods' aunt, Vicki Dalton.

Investigators say the teen suffered head trauma that killed him instantly. He was a sophomore and ROTC cadet at Pendleton County Highschool.

A private burial will be held on Monday.

The parents of Daniel Wood have filed a lawsuit againt the trucking company, alleging negligence.

    Oh my god! Whoever you are(GREED) you should learn to have respect for Daniel.Do you think his family wanted him to die. What is wrong with your head, you are making this poor family sound like horrible people. You need to change the way you judge others, because when your Judgent Day comes you are probally going to be begging for forgiveness.

    What is wrong with you people? I can not believe what I am reading this. Quick to judge someone you do not even know at all. You all should be ashamed. I know this family and I love them. It hurts to read such hateful things. I pray they never see these comments. Does anyone REALLY KNOW what this situation is like. You do not know what this family is going through right now They are in pain,shock, CONFUSION, and they are lost without Daniel. It is so sad to see them hurt. You do not know! So show a little sympathy for both famlies involved, and keep your opinins to yourself.

    While I can not even began to imagine the grief and loss the family are feeling, if it were my son I do know that filing a lawsuit would be the last thing on my mind. I hope the money gives them the comfort they are seeking.

    Wow, looks like lots of you need to look hard in the mirror. Only God can judge anyone by their actions. Everyone deals with pain and grief differently. There is no "proper" way to grieve for a lost child. You won't and can't know how you will handle it until you've had to go through it. May God have Mercy on All of you, not just the Woods family during their time of grief and the truck driver. Those of you who think you can judge, try looking at yourselves. To the Woods family-you grieve your way; what is "right" to these people is obviously not "right" for you. Oh, FYI-I am Not a lawyer. I am a woman that lost a daughter 9 yrs ago this Oct. in what was labeled a "freak accident". Was that satisfactory a reason to me? NO, but I have had to accept it, and I will continue to go on as long as God allows, with His guidance, Not the guidance people who dare to assume what is the right way for me to handle what God lays out before me. Loss of a child is a brutal blow,God help you all

    I'd like to start off by saying that we am very sad and heart broken by this accident and the death of this child and we hope God will bring comfort to his famy. That being said I'd like to say that i have read all of these postings and it breaks my heart to hear the hurtful mean awful things people are saying about my husband it makes me cry to see him called a murderer and things. This was an accident he didnt intentionally hit or hurt anyone. He wasnt drinking nor doing drugs nor talking on the cell phone or any other thing thats been reported. Nor is he a new inexperienced driver he been driving more than 14 years and up until this accident never had any other accidents or speeding tickets or any other type of ticket, and has no criminal record of any kind, all of this will come out so all of you who are judging him before the facts are known please stop to think of what you and your family might feel if you were in an accident and had to hear all of this about yourself. TY

    My mothers whole family lives in Falmouth and the roads out in the country are really curvy and dangerous. Especially if your'e not used to them. I cant believe people on here are "assuming" these parents are greedy and not overwhelmed with grief over their son. You are not them so u do not know what is going on. We are always so quick to judge. Shame on you for saying these things. Sometimes we should keep our opinions to ourselves. God Bless this family. My prayers are with you.

    How much do you get? The family needs no protection...Now what is the excuse?How do the children that survived need protection? They were fortunate enough to live thru this terrible ACCIDENT.God spared them.Evidence will prove any and all that is needed to show who was at fault and exactly what happened. Your family is money hungry and I hope your cousin visits them when they are living off of a lawsuit gained from his death.I don't know how in the world you could uphold them in their decision to file a suit even before the kid had arrived at the funeral home! I understand they want answers and even monetary damages. But poor taste about the timing.Very poor! It leaves the question to anyone reading the story " Is money all these people think about and that they never cared about this poor kid." I wouldn't defend them if I were you. It makes you look as bad as they are.

    God be with this family and all the others involved in this. It doesn't matter which side you are on, it is a terrible tragedy. I don't know who has been talking to the parents or their reasoning on the lawsuit so soon; however, I don't think people should be so quick to judge. I pray that you will never have to go through something like this.
